The Mindy Project’s Ike Barinholtz is bringing his own brand of comedy to the pages of a new book. The untitled project — acquired by Grand Central Publishing — will be a collection of hilarious essays with an accompanying audio version. 

The book is set to chronicle Barinholtz’s journey from Chicago as a “street thug” to a “Tea Party activist and reality show watcher,” according to a release — and it will also appeal to anyone hoping to cook up “delicious, heart-healthy crockpot recipes.” (It has a little something for everyone, apparently.)

“I’m thrilled to be able to share my thoughts with the world, and my piping hot takes will cover all the bases: Comedy, showbiz, sex, Hollywood, the Chicago Bulls of the ’90s, sex and drugs, movies, politics, the ‘Biz,’ pizza and travel, religion and entertainment,” the actor said in a statement. “I just want people to say, ‘OH! THAT GUY! YEAH, HE’S FUNNY, I’LL BUY HIS BOOK, WHAT THE HELL, I’VE GOT LIKE A FIVE HOUR FLIGHT.'”

The book is slated to hit shelves in fall 2017.
